There are many different types anti-fouling paint systems currently applied on ships in the market. however, the effect of these paints on the ship hydrodynamic performance is complex and not easy to evaluate accurately. This is based on the fact that the ship’s hydrodynamic performance will be affected by not only the weather such as wave, wind and current but also rather complex and unpredictable bio-fouling and ageing effect of the hull roughness and propeller. in this lecture, the recent research works related to this area will be reviewed and a practical prediction method for the long period ship performance will be introduced by taking into account the roughness and bio-fouling effect. The reflections on the recently introduced iMO criteria for the energy efficiency will be discussed.
